Abstract: During 24-28 June 1985, a workhop on the design and operation of selective withdrawal structures was conducted in San Francisco, Calif. The objective of the workshop was to assemble the personnel within the Corps of Engineers (CE) who have had experience in the design and operation of selective withdrawal structures and thereby provide a forum for information exchange and identification of common problems arising in either design or operation of these structures. Papers were solicited from across the CE and the resulting mix of topics represents a significant portion of the available information and experience within the CE on design and operation of selective withdrawal structures. At the workshop, two items of structure design were highlighted in presentations and discussions: discharge capacity and multilevel withdrawal flexibility. Limited capacity and limited flexibility were identified as the most common constraints in meeting particular water quality objectives. Another common problem cited in the papers was the long-term modification of the project's operational objectives and, as a consequence, the lack of capability to meet the present objectives with the existing structure. Case studies of structural and operational modifications to meet release objectives were presented. NOTE: This file is very large. Allow your browser several minutes to download the file.
